this was an intelligence failure by the c.i.a. but the president is commander in chief and buck stops with him. the buck stopped with george bush after 9/11. if you are commander in chief you are responsible with what goes on with the military. having said that, i do take exception, they haven't said this but somehow barack obama knew this was going to happen and stood by and allowed it to happen. what may come may come. when you are accuse the president you are accusing him of treason. it would be hard to accuse of any president of specifically and purposely standing by and putting americans in harm's way. there a distinction to be made there. i do agree with the larger point. if we do have answers we should have them. >> that is not at all what the many response critics are saying. the intelligence failure was the explanation the administration has offered up. but it turns out the early intelligence was right. while the attack was taking place for those six hours, there were cables sent that suggest they knew this was al-qaeda related. it turns out it most certainly was. they got it right. one of rema
